The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Quad-City region. 

It states: "A strong storm system will bring a wintry mix of rain, sleet, and snow to portions of northeast Iowa and northwest Illinois.

A mix of snow and sleet will change over to all rain by late morning, but change back over to mixed precipitation during the afternoon and evening.

Expect slick roads conditions for the morning commute. Poor visibility in periods of heavy wet snow is possible, this afternoon and tonight which will result in a wet snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches, and slippery slushy roads."

The winter weather advisory is in effect until 11 a.m. 

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. Additional information can be found at
